Treasurer Ben Wyatt’s accord to increase power prices by about 10.9%, or about $169 annually from next month was a penalty on households with solar panels as stated by some energy experts. The WA government has applied the increase to the daily supply charge, which people pay for the right to be connected to the national grid. This charge will go up from 48.6c/day to 94.9c/day while the variable charge of 26.5c that households for every unit of electricity they use will remain the same.
